I did get a starter blanket and wrap it. if i take the coil wire it will spin a little faster. anyway after i killed it and it would not restart. I walked to my shop 10 feet away and put air in my step dads garden trailer tire. walked back to the truck an started right away. pleas help. if you think this is tune how would i fix it. it screams over the first time you start it and after the few minutes it takes to cool.
It sounds as if the ignition is just a bit over advanced, to me.

Take a few degrees of timing out of it and see if this makes a difference. At least then you can confirm or eliminate timing as the problem.
